14天达尔文至珀斯自驾游行程

这篇文章可能包含会员链接,我可以从中免费获得少量佣金。请看我的 披露页面 有关信息。

因此,我们飞往达尔文,租用了露营车,并在尽可能限制海岸线的情况下,尽可能地靠近海岸线,途经珀斯,途经珀斯,这要求我们仅使用密封道路,但有一些例外。北部地区和西部地区有很多未密封的道路 澳大利亚, so there are a lot of places we had to miss, but at the same time, 2 weeks or 14 days is not a huge amount of time to do the road trip in either. We didn’t really have the time to have done any more than we did. Our original itinerary actually did have more in it but we had to revise some parts of it due to time constraints and availability of the Horizontal Falls Tours as well as doing extra things we saw along the way. In fact, if you do your research, a lot of people would recommend taking a lot more time to do this trip than we did. However, if you really want to do it, are used to driving long distances, and are willing to pack as much in as possible, then it is possible to see and do an awful lot. In short, there is a LOT to do, so consider this just a portion of what you could do and see if you really want to push it and pack everything in you can.

One thing to note, the approximate driving times here are just driving and are not including stops or detours to places along the way. Those add more time, sometimes lots of it!

For us we flew into Darwin overnight, arriving early in the morning of Day 1, then we flew out of Perth at midnight on Day 14. The late-night flights can knock you around a bit though so for some people it could be worth giving yourself some more time for flights and getting ones during the day.

  1. Fantastic help. We are looking at the same trip and was looking for a 14 day itinerary. Thanks brilliant video

  2. We are going in July this year coming up 2019 for 4 weeks , is there anywhere on route what worth a longer stay.

    regards

    • Hey Vic,

      There are lots of places we would spend more time in. The first two would be at the start and finish, Darwin and Perth. We haven’t actually spent much time in Darwin but there is a lot to do there. There is also stacks to do in and around Perth, we’ve been there a few times prior to and since this trip. You could easily spend 4 or 5 days around Perth.

      It would also be good to spend an extra day each in Katherine and Kununnurra.

      There is more to see around Broome, so it would have been good to spend another day or two there.

      I would definitely spend some more time around Exmouth and Ningaloo National Park, particularly if you are into snorkelling, we had to miss some of the snorkelling spots because they were closed on the day we were there, but we didn’t have the time anyway, even if they weren’t closed. There is a reasonable amount of other sights here as well besides the reefs and snorkelling.

      Also if you are into snorkelling, you could easily spend a whole day snorkelling at Coral Bay, it’s beautiful and so calm there, and there is a caravan park opposite the beach so it’s easy to access. If you aren’t into snorkelling though, there isn’t much else to see here.

      Monkey Mia and the road from the highway out to Denham is easy to do, and you can see everything in the time frame we did it in, but if you have the time, it would be quite nice to spend an extra day here.

      The route we took from Kalbarri to Dongara Port Dennison would be good to split over a couple of days rather than one. There is a lot to see, and we definitely had to push to squeeze it in. There were a few things we had to skip as well because we spent too long at other places.

      And lastly, the stretch from Dongara Port Dennison to Perth could also be split over two days, particularly if you are into snorkelling. That way you would have time to check out the Jurien Bay snorkel trail. There really isn’t enough time to do that while covering the necessary distance in one day.

      I hope that helps, let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about the trip!

  3. Your trip info was fantastic- we are looking at doing similar route and were concerned it was too far to do in 3 weeks – thanks so much

    回复
  4. Hi Matt, great video! Could you give me an estimation of fuel costs for this journey? I’ve heard fuel on the west coast can be expensive. Thanks 🙂

    回复
    • Hey Annie, I’m glad it helped you out. Fuel on the west coast isn’t too bad, but it does depend on where you are, closer to Perth tends to get cheaper. Overall though it is much better than central Australia, but it does depend on what you are driving, where exactly you are going and how you are driving. Fuel itself tends to be around 10-20c/L more expensive than in Sydney for diesel and around 30c/L more expensive for regular unleaded petrol. I have written a blog about saving money on fuel while road-tripping around Australia here if it is helpful: https://stillaslife.com/travel/7-tips-for-saving-money-on-fuel-while-road-tripping-around-australia/
      A few tidbits though, if you can get a diesel vehicle it will be much cheaper, especially if you are travelling in a campervan. Diesel prices tend to be lower in the more remote areas. Our campervan was petrol unfortunately and guzzled fuel. We only got 400-500km’s on a tank, even driving as efficiently as we could. A diesel van should get better fuel efficiency as well as being cheaper fuel to purchase in most remote areas.

  5. What a fabulous post, Matt. I must admit I haven’t thought of roadtripping from Darwin to Perth before but you’ve sold me on it – so many great things to see and do! We all love a good road trip but have been doing them mostly internationally until now. I think that will change now and so having an inspiration for an Aussie trip like this is fabulous. Many thanks!

    回复
    • Thanks Katerina! It is an amazing trip. Places like the Horizontal Falls and Purnululu National Park are (in my opinion) some of Australia’s must-see natural wonders, akin to Milford, Doubtful and Dusky Sounds in New Zealand’s Fiordland. The trip is also such a great overview of North-West Australia. It’s my number one favourite road trip in Australia, even above Uluru/Kata Tjuta through the centre and way ahead of the Great Ocean Road from Adelaide to Melbourne. I hope you are able to find the opportunity to do it and enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂

  6. What a trip! This is making me miss Australia so much. I went to both Darwin and Perth but didn’t have time to road trip unfortunately. Will definitely be looking at this for some inspiration though! A great post with some good tips!

    • Thanks Anneka, I’m glad you enjoyed your time in Australia and found my blog inspirational. Darwin and Perth are both beautiful cities, but the remote northwestern communities and natural beauty along the roads between the two are definitely worth exploring if you get the opportunity to come back to Australia!
